Manchester United receive bid for right-back Matteo Darmian: report

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United have reportedly received a bid for Italian defender Matteo Darmian from Valencia after his future was recently thrown up into the air.

The former Torino man has hardly lit the Premier League alight since arriving and has failed to consistently hold onto a spot in the starting XI.

A versatile defender capable of featuring on either full-back positions or even the centre of defence, it’s a surprise that Darmian hasn’t taken advantage of his ability.

United knew that they weren’t getting the most attacking right-back in the world but expected him to show the same solidity he did in Italy.

Unfortunately that wasn’t the case and he was overtaken by a former winger trained to be a full-back in Antonio Valencia to become the club’s first choice in that position.

According to Football Italia, Spanish side Valencia are interested in signing Matteo, making him a prime target and even putting in a bid for him.

Jose Mourinho is likely to accept any bids for him should the reports be true especially given recent events and how he’s slowly become a disposable player.

The 28 year old was dropped after a horrific performance and has since been deemed as injured by the Portuguese manager.

It appears as though that was the last straw for Mourinho with Matteo Darmian failing to make an appearance afterwards and of course the aforementioned suspicious sudden injury.

The Red Devils should be able to command a respectable fee for him but the question lies as to who should be brought in to play back up to Antonio.
